Diversity, inclusion and well-being is an important part of our culture and the values that drive our Gateley Team Spirit. We are committed to a fully inclusive, diverse and healthy working environment.
Gender Pay Gap
Gender Pay Gap reporting is based on government methodology focusing on the difference in average pay between men and women in an organisation.Gender pay is not the same as equal pay. Whilst it is true that both deal with the disparity of pay women receive in the workplace, they are different and should not be confused.
Equal pay means that men and women in the same employment performing equal work must receive equal pay. At Gateley, our remuneration is based on the appropriate level of experience someone has for the job role they are performing and not their gender. We are confident we pay men and women equal pay for performing equal work.
Gender pay measures a very different metric – it is a measure of the difference between men and women’s average earnings across the entire organisation regardless of their job role.Across the UK economy and society as a whole, currently men are more likely than women to be in senior roles and therefore earn more. Most organisations will therefore have a gender pay gap.

Diversity & inclusion
As a Stonewall Diversity Champion, we create a working environment where our people have ‘room to breathe’. We want them to feel they can be 100% themselves at work. We use our three internal support networks to provide this support:
- Pride – Our Pride group help to: raise awareness of LGBT+ issues across the Gateley group; provide opportunities for internal networking; and to develop and maintain relationships with external LGBT+ groups and networks.
- Inspire – Our Inspire network group has been set up to nurture, develop and provide support to all of our talent across the Gateley group with a particular focus on career milestones, enabling our people to carve the careers they want successfully and to promote diversity and inclusion.
- Thrive – Our Thrive network supports the health and wellbeing of all employees to promote high levels of performance both physically and mentally across the group. The Thrive committee runs a series of events and training programmes throughout the year to raise awareness and to inspire our people to take care of themselves and those around them.
As well as large events, we have local champions in each of our offices, for each of our networks to provide access to support whenever it’s needed.
